6 Leader as a governance tool for balanced territorial development in the RDP
Clear, appropriate Objectives & Priorities at EU-level (legislation) Pertinent Analysis and setting of Goals (at programming level) Wide menu Pre-defined measures Governance-based approach (LEADER / CLLD) Balanced Rural Development Programme

7 Lessons learnt from previous programming periods
Some rigidities in the use of LEADER as driver for CLLD Limited quality of strategies Limited LAG's capacities to develop and implement a LDS Unclear responsibilities of different involved parties Limited level of participation and limited interest by the private sector

8 What is new (1)? LDS as central tool to meet core objectives at local level: unlocking strategies from RD measures Clear provisions on the elements of a LDS List of minimum tasks of a LAG Greater focus on animation and capacity building Strengthening the participation of the private sector in the partnerships Multi-funded strategies

9 What's new (2)? Simplified costs Increased range for population
Tailor made definition of rural areas Streamlined transnational cooperation EAFRD support rate to LEADER up to 80% (90%) Minimum 5% EAFRD contribution to LEADER

10 Achieving the added value of LEADER
Chosing a flexible and open approach which is in line with the needs on the ground Keep additional rules to necessary minimum Support capacity-building at all implementation levels Appropriate division of tasks Reduce administrative burden for all Provide space for innovation National co-funding has to be ensured Evaluate efficiency of delivery system

11 A new chance for LEADER?!
